During the visit, the band – using their specially created Habbo characters -- will check into HABBO HOTEL’S “Teen People Terrace” at 6:15 to 7pm EST for their interview, as well as hang out with fans and answer questions about their music, tour, and new CD.

Yellowcard is made up of Ryan Key, Sean Mackin, Ryan Mendez, Pete Mosely and Longineu “LP” Parsons III. After signing with Capitol Records in 2003, they released “Ocean Avenue,” which went double-platinum and featured the hit singles “Way Away” and “Only One”. “Ocean Avenue” sold 2.5 million copies world-wide. The band was also honored with the MTV2 Award at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards.
HABBO HOTEL is a richly colorful, multi-dimensional virtual community targeted to teens 13-19. Since its launch in 2000, HABBO HOTEL has taken the world by storm.

Boasting a user community evenly divided between male and female, HABBO HOTEL combines the concept of simulation gaming with the camaraderie of a community -- enabling teens and young adults to express themselves creatively. Teens join by creating a fully-customized online character persona, called a Habbo. From there, users explore the vast hotel where they can chat and make friends with other Habbos, play a wide range of games, party and dance by the pool, create and decorate their own fantasy hotel room – the interactivity and options are virtually limitless.
